Continental, a leading global supplier of systems, components and tires to automobile and truck manufacturers, and a trusted provider of OE-engineered aftermarket parts, has added a new line of wireless cameras and monitors to its performance proven range of cameras systems. The new cameras are ideal for use on articulated equipment or vehicles where long cable lengths are not preferred.
Available in 12V and 24V configurations, Continental’s new wireless cameras offer a wide range of applications in small and medium trucks, agricultural and construction equipment, and material handling applications. The line also incorporates a camera designed specifically for forklift applications.
A clearer connection
Continental’s new cameras and monitors feature a unique code-pairing technology that allows for simple installation and setup of the system. The code-pairing also helps to reduce interference and maintains a stable video connection with a barrier-free transmission distance of up to 130 yards.
The cameras are built to handle rugged operation in the harshest conditions. They feature an IP 69K housing design that’s water and dust-proof, and resistant to shock up to 100g. Versatile mounting options allow for easy installation on all types of vehicles and equipment.
Continental offers two 120-degree wide angle wireless camera options: A single view model with a resolution of 728 X 488 pixels and quad view model delivering 756 X 504 pixels. Both cameras can be used as stand-alone pieces or in a group of up to four cameras to provide a complete view around the vehicle or equipment. Both cameras include four LEDs to enable IR night vision. A third camera is specially designed for forklift-applications. It features a 45-degree wide angle view and three LEDs to enable IR night vision. Two remote-controlled 7 in. monitors are offered to interface with the cameras as required by the customers.
Duvin Nath, Continental Automotive Aftermarket product manager, announced the new line of camera systems, noting, “Continental recognized the need for customizable camera solutions that are often required for specialty OEMs and fleets. This line of wireless cameras and monitors was developed to meet those application needs. It offers a wide range of installation options that can provide operators with an extra level of vision to make their work easier and safer.”
Nath added, “We are particularly excited about our special forklift camera. Forklift operators always have a challenge when they handle the pallets that are out of their eyesight while the forks are raised. Our new cameras are specifically developed to help them increase the awareness of their surroundings.”
